Spend more time at the Hindu Temples

If you are messed for time in Khajuraho, skip the Jain temple complex in favour of spending more time at the main Hindu Temple complex.

The museum is an eye opener with regard to rich Jain History and Tirthankaras statues. One is left wondering why this religion is still unknown to many people, thoiugh its roots in India is more then 5000 years old.

This is interesting if you know something about the Jain religion. The old temples have been partially covered by new Jain additions still it is ok for a short visit.

The museum is located just outside the Jain temples area and is worth visiting to see the many fine pieces of carvings that have been recovered fro the ruins of jain temples in the area. Nice display.

You can cover this temple also in your visit to Khajuraho, as it shows similar art but images & figures are different. However, maintenance is lacking here. Outside the temple the is a shop run by an elderly person, where you can buy Bamboo Silk saree & other momentos at a very reasonable cost.
